"This is great way to substitute mashed potatoes. It has a unique flavor and is full of veggie goodness. This recipe begs to be added to. I have used ranch dressing powder, Italian seasonings, or Old Bay®. Each time it comes out with a unique flavor. Have fun with it."

I was going for the Mac and Cheese flavor so I kept adding butter until it was creamy. :) I substituted plain yogurt for sour cream and kept adding it and extra apple cider vinegar until it had ...

This recipe is delicious and so easy to make. I did it a little differently. I used fresh match stick carrots and cauliflower. I boiled the carrots and steamed the cauliflower. Used less vinega...
